HEATER: Now with LIPS!

The weekend issue of Heater is up. This week, we have augmented the pitcher pages with LIPS (Luck-Independent Pitching Stats), a form of Expected ERA invented by David Gassko that considers all types of batted balls (not merely GB/FB/LD but down to the level of infield vs. outfield flies and bunts) and all manner of outcome, including double plays and foul outs. It is the most advanced form of Expected ERA that we know of, and we are pleased to be able to bring it to you. We still also run the pitcher’s “True” (projected underlying) rates of K/9, K/BB, and ERA. It’s a fantasy GM’s dream!

Our thanks to David Gassko for sharing his calculation.
